As a Mac Pro owner, it's sometimes hard not to feel like Apple has just forgotten its professional desktop user-base all together. Sure, there was a new Mac Pro this year -- but it was hardly a step above the 2010 model. While we wait to see if Apple will revitalize the product line, at least NVIDIA is offering something new.
While there hasn’t been much digital ink on the subject, apparently iPhoto ’11 has been giving nothing but grief to Mac users with NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics cards. But relief appears at hand, simply by installing this week’s Mac OS X 10.6.7 update.

Apple has just released a Snow Leopard graphics update that fixes all of your video game woes.

If you've been having issues with your favorite games for awhile now, this simple, 70MB update just might fix your problem.
